Kathryn Barulich

I am an art historian working toward a PhD at the UC San Diego Art History Theory and Criticism. My research is primarily focused on contemporary immersive installation and theories of haunting. This work takes up Gothic literature, phenomenology, site specificity, and the female uncanny. I am also interested in medieval animated sculpture, Victorian interior design, the French Revolution, and the intersections of the occult and technology. I earned a Masters degree in History and Theory of Contemporary Art at San Francisco Art Institute, with a focus on the linguistic and aesthetic strategies deployed by Dada artists working in interwar France. Previously, I studied Art History and French Language and Literature at Fordham University.
